Do you have the *exact* identifier you used? That one doesn't look right- it has a space in it.

At this point, you need to choose the correct etree collection for this band, and then click the "submit etree" button. Then you'll add metadata for the item (title, description, etc.) on the next page and submit that. It will take 5-30 minutes for item to go live, and anywhere from 1-5 hours for all of the lossy files to be made and start showing up on the details page (the URL above). Thanks!

You chose the identifier path2004-04-16 when you created the item. Once it's uploaded, even when it's still in process like this, it can always be found at:

archive.org/details/identifier

where identifier, in this case, is path2004-04-16 (or whatever identifier you chose).

The contribution page is *only* for the old system. It will not show you any items contributed through the new system.

Yes, once you submit the data, it will take 5-20 minutes or so for the item to go live. At that point, it will only have lossless files because the deriver will still be running. It will take anywhere from 1-5 hours (in general) for the lossies to show up.

You can change metadata information for your item by going to its details page (once it's live) and clicking the "Edit item" link in the lower left box. Only the item contributor can see that link, so you (and our admins) are the only people who can change that information.

The contribution page is *only* for the old system. It will not show you any items contributed through the new system.

I've still been telling people to go there,
http://www.archive.org/contribute.php
because the New System box in the upper part has

"Create and upload a new movie, audio recording, live concert recording, or book.

"See your contribution tasks that are not yet completed.
See your history of contribution tasks that are done."

The "tasks that are done" can be pretty useful (to see history and stuff) besides just the create/ link!

Because you put it "audio"> Open Source Audio instead of "etree"> Signal Path!? What happened there?

If you leave an error report it can go on the to-do list. Also, please don't choose CC licenses or PD for any LMA-intended item unless you are with the band or have direct instruction from them to do so. Licensing choices should be their *own* choices.
